With due regards, your attention is invited to the letter cited under reference (1) whereby this federation has requested to issue necessary clarification for fixation of pay in various circumstances under the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016.
In turn, vide letter cited under reference (2) it has been communicated that MoD has sent a proposal to MoD(Finance) on 05.12.2016 to seek clarification about the manner of fixation of pay through illustrations prepared by D(Civ-I).
One of the doubts is still pending and that is causing discontentment amongst the employees, which is as under:-
Point of Doubt No.3: If the pay of an employee ‘XYZ’ was Rs. 12200 in PB-1 plus 2800 GP as on 31.12.2015 and after completion of 10 yrs regular service, he would be eligible for grant of financial upgradation under MACP on 15.03.2017 in the Grade pay of 4200, kindly clarify:-
(i) Whether ‘XYZ’ may opt 7th CPC w.e.f. 15.03.2017 (date of financial upgradation) and till then (14.03.2017) he will draw his wages in the existing system of 6th CPC.
It is worth to mention here that Audit Authorities state that option is available between 01.01.2016 and the date of issue of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 only.
Therefore, you are requested to take appropriate action so that the employees may be benefitted with the fixation of pay in correct perspective without further delay.
